Communities and governments need reliable information to adapt to rapid changes in the Arctic environment. Scientists need to continually advance the body of knowledge and—at the same time—answer immediately practical questions. The Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) brings together researchers from diverse disciplines and institutions to accelerate cross-discipline syntheses and to make scientific understanding more readily accessible to policy makers and other stakeholders. Knowledge pyramids utilized in the creation of Arctic Answers foster syntheses and broad understanding across sectors and stakeholder groups, including at the policy level. Brendan Kelly, Executive Director of SEARCH, will discuss SEARCH and the Arctic Answers initiative.
